Friday, March 1 kicked off the beginning of Disney California Adventure’s Food and Wine Festival at the Disneyland Resort! While this festival brings us incredible entertainment, attractions, and merchandise, the real star of the show is the food! We were invited out by the Disneyland Resort and gifted tasting cards with eight entitlements to try festival food that interested us. Mr. Daps and I shared all eight items and we wanted to share our top 5 bites!

  1. Cheeseburger Bao – California Craft Brews
  2. Cheese Pizza-flavored Wings – Cluck A Doodle Moo
  3. Chile Relleno Empanada – Peppers Cali-ente

As you can see, we did our best to try as many booths as we could! While there were ten festival booths, we only had eight entitlements and had to pick the items we were most excited to try! Unfortunately, this means we had to miss Uncork California and Golden Dreams (our favorite booth name!).

At a reception for invited guests later in the evening, we got a chance to try the (plant-based!) Baja-style fish taco at LA Style, Impossible Beef Stroganoff at Earth Eats, and the S’mores Caramel Tart at California Craft Brews. We were blown away by these items and were thrilled we got a chance to try them. We even tried the fish taco before we knew it was plant-based and were absolutely blown away! If you’re tentative about trying meatless items, this is a great entry point!
